They could do X-Force with Cable, Excalibur, The Runaways, Exiles, AoA, The New Warriors. Heroes for Hire (though it might be better suited for tv since Luke Cage was a member).Starting
I came across a news article last night that appears to confirm Marisa Tomei will be appearing in a cameo role as Aunt May in Captain America: Civil War. Is it me, or is the movie starting to fall into the same character overload as Batman v. Superman? Civil War should at least be broken up into at least a two-part movie, or even make it an epic trilogy.
to fall into that? It's been that way since I can remember, the cast was at least half a dozen Avenger-level peeps on IMDB from very early on. There are at least 11 main hero-level characters as of now, and that's not including side characters like Sharon Carter and whoever Martin Freeman is playing, plus General Ross, and not including Crossbones or Zemo as the villains. I'd be surprised if this doesn't turn into a bloated mess like Age of Ultron. They've got most of the characters we've already seen before and have had some backstory but now Black Panther, Spidey, Zemo and Martin Freeman's characters are going to have to get in some of that too and there's just no room for that in a movie that isn't theirs. The twins in AoU had little if any time for that and it was over so fast nobody gave a crap about
Marvel needs to figure out that the amount of applause they got when they announced Infinity War was going to be in two parts means that people will shell out money for their stuff even if they constantly split things up, but better if they do it just a few months apart. If they give us BETTER product by doing this, using the same amount of work and just making it into longer movies with story as filler instead of special effects, they'll make MORE money, and faster too.
Think about it:
Released in early May is Avengers II - Part One: Rise of Ultron, released in late June or early/mid-July is Avengers II - Part Two: Age of Ultron (between the two films there should be some time elapsed to show Ultron being untouchable and requiring a different approach, that way it isn't just about half a week of Ultron...) And finally Ant-Man gets an October or November release and a few extra months to tidy up since they were rushed and could have used a bit more smoothing out. Win-freakin'-win, right?
Captain America III - Part One: Patriot Act (or some such 'trouble brewing' sort of title) / Captain America III - Part Two: Civil War (full blown conflict title to let you know it's gotten serious, so if you missed the first one, you'll quickly rectify that).
Seriously, that would have been the best-case scenario, wouldn't it? Why not at least say they're 'toying' with the idea of this and get fan reactions to see if they ought to try it on for size before their climactic yet realistically too-soon-for-that-kind-of-story Avengers finale? Do they not have market analysts hissing in their ears about this? They've already proven they're willing to take risks and succeed in them with Guardians, so...come on, Feige, be a bro already.
